  1. Add road closures that happen at specific times

    For example, there’s a road on one of my regular routes that is currently undergoing construction and it’s a 2 lane highway so in order to work on it properly without traffic interference, they close the road between the hours of 10pm-5am Mon-fri. I noticed there is no option to report closures with a specific time frame which kind of sucks. I think it would be beneficial to add this feature as I know of quite a few other roads or ramps that close only at specific times.

  2. Fix Assistant Integration

    Hey, does your programming dept. have school credentials from ECPI instead of MIT? What's the hold up with fixing the location handshake between Waze and Google Assistant? You DO realize that OS 13 is being released by the end of the year. Let me guess, you're hoping that will fix the problem so your incompetence will fade into history! I've been back and forth with CS for MONTHS and have not heard a peep about this problem!

  3. Object in roadway

    Waze needs to specify which lane to avoid when warning about objects in the road. Add a lane selection when reporting the object and then add that info to the warning. I need to know which lane is safe to drive in.

  5. CLOSED STREET REPORT IMPROVEMENT

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest an improvement of Waze driver interface. Specifically cleaning up and making it easier for the driver to report a street live street closure. When doing that, the map that pops out makes it very difficult to recognize which street we want to indicate that is closed. Cleaning this option up and adding street names would greatly improve ability to report it and warn other drivers.

    Thank you in advance

  7. Potholes Suck!

    Potholes are expensive and municipalities do not like to cover the property damage, neither do insurance companies....

    You should add the feature to report a pothole and send it to the county/state responsible.....this will help people avoid rim damage (like we did to the tune of ~$400) and so that municipalities can't deny the claim of damage with the lame excuse that "they didn't know" like Winston-Salem, NC did to us...

    Waze would save so much money for their users!

  8. Being able to Report Hazards/Accidents/Police on roads that aren’t your current location.

    Currently, you are only able to make reports in the exact spot you are driving through.
    Live reporting whilst driving is very unsafe and using the phone while driving is illegal.

    I suggest there should be a feature where you can make reports that aren’t in the exact spot you currently traveling through.
    This makes reporting safer and even can make the spot more accurate.

    Example, If I was driving and wanted to report there are police on a different road then I’m on “excluding the opposite side” I can’t.

    If you think this is too powerful or could be…

  9. Feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm.

    Add a feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm ahead as there is no function to report this reason now if there is a jam ahead due to these circumstances and people can only report fog or jail which is not suitable for describing the situation.

  12. Multi Directional Alerts

    Multi-Directional Alerts
    Weather and animals on the shoulder should be Multi-Directional Alerts.
    This is true as the weather doesn't care what direction you're coming from.
    Also, animals on the shoulder could cross the road and come back on again from the other side.
    Please consider this suggestion.

    Have speed camera, police and booze buses as all different icons so people can tell the difference between them. 1 icon for all police isn't specific enough.

  15. Eliminate need for secondary app

    My husband has to track mileage for work. He uses a secondary/concurrent app to track mileage. If Waze would track the mileage for him, it would eliminate the time/attention he spends on this other app and would free up his phone.

  17. Landscape mode - report (not selectable)

    About a year ago - report became unselectable via UI when the phone is in landscape mode.

    A separate control to switch map orientation sits underneath. Change map rotation fires instead of the considerably larger "report ui"

    Id like the UI to function - report being one of the more helpful pieces whilst driving.

  18. Stop blocking excessive reporting

    There are a huge number of pot holes in Sydney due to the floods and rainfall. I was reporting each and every one until I got flagged for excessive reporting noting my account would be blocked from reporting. If this is designed to be a community app, remove this feature blocking people so we can save damage to our vehicles and potentially save lives.

  20. Allow "object on road" and "vehicle on shoulder/road" reports from the other side like you can with police

    I like the feature of being able to report police on the other side of the road, but we should be able to mark vehicles on shoulder or objects on road from the other side as well. I often see both of those unmarked on the other side and I wish i could warn motorists coming from the other direction
